Defenders of Wildlife

Permian to Padre - the fossil fuel industry's impact on wildlife and water across Texas. We will travel from the oil and gas wells in west Texas, across the state via the pipelines and to the Gulf coast where the product is refined and shipped, examining the impact on local endangered species (explaining why they are endangered), on aquifers, rivers and streams (drinking water for millions of people), air pollution (human health and climate change) and altering economies that rely on healthy ecosystems in central and coastal Texas (wine industry, nature tourism, birding, fisheries).
